Threatened Species Research Grants

The Queensland Threatened Species Research Grants provide up to $150,000 (ex GST) to eligible recipients to support research projects which will improve our understanding of Queensland’s threatened flora and fauna species and assist in their conservation and recovery. A total of up to $500,000 in funding is available in this round of grants.

Projects funded will be those that undertake research activities and develop actionable information assisting the recovery of one or more species listed as threatened under either the Queensland Nature Conservation Act 1992 or those that occur in Queensland and are listed as threatened under the Commonwealth Government’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.
